Madeleines is a virtual game book in 10 episodes that tells the story of two lovers who communicate through notes and pieces of paper hid in
an italian library's books.
Set in the 80's but playable ad a modern PDF, the game takes inspiration from 10 literature classics for its puzzles, for which I was in charge of the visual design and illustration. The game was commissioned by Rete Delle Reti, an italian association of libraries, and it's available on Itch.io.
▶ What I did
I took care of the visual design and the illustration for all the puzzles in the game.

All the pages you see have been altered to take out crucial pieces of information needed to solve the puzzles for the sake of this portfolio.
All the graphics for the puzzles are inspired by the book chosen as focus of the episode: Treasure Island, La Coscienza di Zeno, Ulysses, etc.
Through the puzzles, the players must find the keywords needed to open the password-protected PDF containing the following episode of the game.
